Another new BlackBerry smartphone on the market might be seen, following the successful launch of the company's latest flagship smartphone KeyOne. A new BlackBerry smartphone bearing the model number BBD100-1 has been spotted in UAProfs (TCL). TCL is the Chinese company which uses to build BlackBerry-branded devices nowadays.

However, the upcoming BlackBerry BBD100-1 smartphone will reportedly be equipped by either a Snapdragon 625, which is similar to the BlackBerry KEYone, or the Snapdragon 626 chipset. The leak also claims that the upcoming smartphone will feature a Full HD display of 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, as reported by The Android Soul.

The reason for the confusion regarding the chipset in upcoming BlackBerry BBD100-1 is that the model numbers for these two SoCs are MSM8953 and MSM8953 Pro, respectively. Here, the "Pro" suffix gets lost when the user check UAProf or benchmark databases, as reported by GSM Arena.

If TCL is really working on releasing the BlackBerry BBD100 then surely more information regarding the device can be seen in the coming weeks and months. Some of the users on CrackBerry also suggest that spotted BlackBerry BBD100 could be the BlackBerry Krypton, the successor of the BlackBerry DTEK 50/60.

Right now, the only thing known is that TCL is working on a new BlackBerry smartphone with the BBD100-1 model number, which is under work currently. More details about this smartphone in the coming weeks or months is expected to be released soon.

BlackBerry's recent KeyOne comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 SoC and features 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage.  The handset has a 4.5-inch display that has a resolution of 1620 x 1080 pixels, plus a full QWERTY keyboard. On the optics side, it has an 8-megapixelxel front facing the camera and on the back of the handset, there is a 12-megapixel camera.
